The Sewing Games!

I’m not a very good sewer….seamstress.
I don’t really have the patience for it.
I can do straight lines. That’s about it. And I use straight very loosely. Like so loosely that my thread doesn’t quite stay in place.

But I sew anyway.

If you want a really great seamstress, I can hook you up! Between my mom, Cassie’s Mam, Melissa’s mom, AND Christi’s mom…I don’t know why I bother… Although if I didn’t I would be putting my past 4-H leaders to shame. Though if they saw my sewing that might be enough shame…

Ok it’s not that bad.

So this project I sewed… A little over the seat car caddy…thing…

I saw one at Goodwill one day and didn’t get it and realized I needed it too late!

I thought that I could probably make it using something I already had…something easy to turn into a bag…like… a pair of pants! Sew easy!! (Waa-Waa!)

And I have a ton! Well a few at least. Like this bag.

Here they are all folded and neat looking. There was even a cami in there.20140211-170010.jpg

I limited down to 2 choices. I really wanted cool back pockets.20140211-170225.jpg

I went with the light ones.

Got my tools ready…(trust me, I’m gonna need the seam ripper)

And here is the reason these jeans ended up in the bag… holes…

Looks like I made a pair of $60 shorts! jk!

I turned them inside out and did a quick straight line.20140211-171703.jpg

Flipped them inside out! Look! So cute!

Now to sew up some of the holes!!

I used left over jean to make a strap…this is my attempt at cutting straight…as you can see from exhibit A…I suck.20140211-173037.jpg

I fixed it…kind of and used some extra biding tape.

And here it is! All finished up! It works really well. 20140211-173343.jpg

So yes. I’m finished. It hasn’t fallen apart yet. And I am the best person to do that if I do say so myself. 🙂

Happy sewing days.
And May the bobbin be ever in your favor!
